A 60-year-old woman was stabbed to death only a block and a half from her home in Jamaica last night, according to police.
Police found Nazma Khanam, 60, outside 160-12 Normal Road, near her home at 161st Street, around 9:15 p.m. last night with a stab wound in her torso. She was transported to Jamaica Hospital and pronounced dead.
DNAinfo reports the stabbing may have been a botched robbery. Khanam had been walking home with her husband from the souvenir shop they ran nearby.
NBC reports that Khanam's nephew is an NYPD transit officer and a member of the NYPD Muslim Officers Society.
